Haley has worked at Richmond Pediatrics as a nurse since 2010, shortly after her graduation from the University of Vermont. She loves nothing more then seeing her long-time patients here and witnessing how much they grow and change over time. She specializes in vaccination spacing/scheduling, as well as general infant care during the first year of life.
Her lifelong passion for maternal-newborn health has also led her to her other career as a doula. She owns her own doula business, Island Doula, LLC, where she focuses on supporting families during the entire perinatal period. To learn more about her and her business, you can visit the Island Doula website. Haley is also the Coordinator of the new Volunteer Labor Doula Program at the University of Vermont Medical Center.
Haley grew up in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom and now resides in Grand Isle, VT with her husband, Dustin, and two children, Bryson (2015) and Tenley (2017). For self-care she enjoys listening to audiobooks, camping with her family, traveling to the beach, eating ice cream, and practicing photography.

New Yorker by birth, but Vermonter at heart. Stephanie is an avid rock climber, skier, triathlete and photographer who received a B.S. in Dietetics from SUNY Oneonta and completed her Dietetic Internship at The University of Virginia.
Most recently, she worked at the Biggest Loser Resort Niagara while living in Buffalo, NY. There, she also met her fiancé at a Food Truck Event – a perfect start to a foodie relationship. Stephanie recently relocated to Vermont to be close to the great outdoors, amazing food and to be part of a health conscience community.
She is now part of a team of Registered Dietitians based in Vermont called Whole Health Nutrition. Stephanie specializes in pediatric nutrition and sports nutrition as well as weight management and disordered eating.
In the past, we were lucky to have Stephanie offer nutrition counseling services on behalf of Whole Health Nutrition in our office and would love to have her again in the future.
